This is a group proceeding (class action) brought by Phillip Brent Krakouer against the Australian Football League (AFL). 

The claim alleges that Mr Krakouer and the other group members experienced racism, racial vilification, racial discrimination, racial abuse, racial violence or victimisation (the ‘racism conduct’) during their time participating in the AFL competition. Mr Krakouer alleges that he suffered injury, loss and damage as a result of the racism conduct. 

The proposed group members to this proceeding are persons who are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people and/or people of colour, who played in the AFL competition between 1975 and 2022, and persons who were/are in close relationships with those players. 

The group proceeding is being run by Margalit Injury Lawyers on a ‘no win no fee’ basis. There is currently no third party litigation funder involved in this group proceeding.
